Can (Nagoya). Clear golden color, small white head. Light grainy aroma. Light-bodied. Sweetish corn-like maltyness. Soft palate but somewhat alcoholic or/and acidic. Basic, somewhat clean lager. For relaxing times, make it Suntory time.

Lubiere (11148) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2008
A golden lager with a huge unctuous frothy white head. Aroma of malt is lightly herbal hops. In mouth, plenty of biscuitty malts with German hopping, very grainy and chewy. Overall, quite interesting. Medium bodied. Can from Japan, from a colleague, Nov. 2007.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 1, 2007
Can. Golden with a medium fairly lasting white head. Sweet aroma of malt with some fruitiness. Flavour is fresh and clean, nice maltiness with some fruitish hops. Finish is a little bitter. An very tasty all malts beer!

MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2003
A nice foam throne remains overseeing the gentle hay fields and polite hoppiness...A pleasant dryness reigns over the delicate flower garden of a rural pagoda...Extremely subtle, perhaps a bit too much so, but nonetheless satisfying for these famished tastebuds...
